The Highwomen Share Self-Titled Track [Listen]

The Highwomen—Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, Maren Morris and Natalie Hemby—have shared their eponymous song, “Highwomen,” from their upcoming self-titled album (Sept. 6).

“Highwomen” was penned by Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile and Jimmy Webb, who is the songwriter behind “Highwayman,” the titular track performed by 1980s supergroup The Highwaymen, which featured Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. “Highwomen” follows previously released lead single “Redesigning Women” and “Crowded Table.”

On their upcoming debut album that was produced by Dave Cobb, The Highwomen are joined by several guest musicians, vocalists and songwriters. The project features Sheryl Crow (background vocals, bass), Yola (vocals, background vocals), Cobb (acoustic/electric guitar), Jason Isbell (acoustic/electric guitar), Phil Hanseroth (bass, background vocals), Tim Hanseroth (guitar, background vocals), Chris Powell (drums) and Peter Levin (piano and keyboards) with songs written by Carlile, Hemby, Morris, Shires, Isbell, the Hanseroth twins, Rodney Clawson, Lori McKenna, Miranda Lambert and Ray LaMontagne among many others.

“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Carlile says. “It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”
